A man in Germany has spent £3000 (€3,600) on having his penis enlarged by less than an inch.
Murat K., 36, went to visit a doctor in Hanover who specialises in the 'autologous fat method' that gives 'two centimetres in length and girth'.
Surgeon Dr Christian Kerpen, 49, a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery from the specialist clinic 'Cosmopolitan Aesthetics' in Hanover, performed the operation on Murat.
The 36-year-old was unhappy with the length of his manhood, which measured 'only 7.5 centimetres' (three inches), whereas the German average length is around 13 centimetres (five inches) when erect.
Murat said he's been trying for years to increase the length of his member.
He admitted: "I tried pills, creams, penis pumps and expanders to lengthen my penis. I spent over 1,000 euros - nothing helped!"
He added: "One of them told me right in the face that I wasn't well equipped."
Dr Kerpen, who performs over 300 operations a year, said: "You can argue about the right size, circumference or shape."
There are two methods to change the size of a penis - surgical lengthening with ligaments, and the second is the enlargement of the member with autologous fat.
Dr Kerpen specialises in the enlargement of the member with autologous fat obtained from the stomach area, which is then injected into the penis.
The operation takes about 60 minutes.
Dr Kerpen says: "Two centimetres in length and girth - make a big difference!"
It gets worse though because, according to doctors, anyone suffering from penis shrinkage due to Covid may never get the original size back.
The unnamed man explained what happened to him when he rang in to the podcast How to Do It where he said before contracting Covid he had an above average size penis.
But when he recovered from being 'very sick', the man - who is in his 30s - said his member had reduced in size by an inch and a half.
A study, which was published in the Lancet's journal EClinicalMedicine, looked at 3,762 people from 56 countries who had either confirmed or suspected long Covid.
While the most commonly mentioned symptoms included fatigue, brain fog and post-exertional malaise - subjects also mentioned other less well-known effects such as tremors, itchy skin, a decrease in penis size, sexual dysfunction and blurred vision.
